She attempts to understand how, through the use of various types of archival and contemporary images as well as their subjective selection, a collective memory is built. Anna Maria is interested how images circulate on the internet and how their meanings change according to the context, or even the order of presentation. By combining video with spatial elements she allows them to pass from a virtual space into the material world and the viewer's non-linear interpretation.
